If you don't dare utter that snarky comment going through your head at work, let Anne Taintor's fabulous office supplies do the talking for you--while giving your desk a sweet style boost.
Vintage images and retro graphics combined with witty, sarcastic blurbs make Taintor's impossibly cute, incredibly smart file folders, notepads, and other not-so-basic office staples irresistible.
We got the Fancy File Folders from her Modern Office Revisited line (only $12 for a pack of six!), and we can't stop oohing and ahhing. The Sticky Notes and Nifty Notepads are also on my wish list. For outside the office, I'm a fan of the stickers, passport holders, and cosmetic bags. Go to Taintor's Web site to buy me... eh, I mean yourself... a little somethin'. You can also read about the 'Taintorettes' --the models from the '30s, '40s, and '50s whose faces appear on Taintor's work--and read their fabulous life stories.
Even better, Taintor has her own great story: A single mother and cartographer searching for a way to spend more time at home with her daughter, she started her indie collage biz as a side project and eventually quit her day job. Cool lady, cool stuff.--Jax
